Personally I don't know of anything. You would need some external program that does the sending to the cell phone, which you might possibly control using a COM object.

Some discussion about that here:

If I were going to try, I would probably do it through a service like twilio.

Yeah, out of curiousity I did a quick google search on how one could make an SMS funtion. This page: https://www.developershome.com/sms/howToSendSMSFromPC4.asp

And the others on the site, seem to suggest you could "build" one, but its probably easier to use an existing one. That said, it would need an account, of some sort, to "pay" for the messaging (damn cell companies can't do anything for free, not even basic messages..) and then its just a case of having mushclient use https to connect, send the request, and watch to see if the return indicated that it worked. I seem to remember cases of mushclient using http to talk to some things, separate from the connection to the mud/mush you are playing, but.. not sure how much more complicated it is to use https instead, and you need to, since, from the above page, its likely you have to pass the account ID and password, as part of the transaction with any SMS service you may want to use.

Might be a handshake you could capture by running a protocol analyzer on your local network with a mirrored port on your router and a cell company that allows WiFi calling/SMS. T-Mobile or AT&T.

Edit: might be easier if you can get a protocol analyzer on your phone instead.
